BBNBA Playoffs: Wizards’ slow start causes game 5 loss

bbnba-playoffs

After two dominating performances at home in games 3 and 4, the Wizards traveled to Boston for game 5. The Celtics flipped the script and handed Washington a blow out loss of their own. A slow start in the first quarter put the Wizards behind and they never really played themselves back into the game. The Celtics ran out to an early 16-4 lead and never looked back, leaving most of the fourth quarter as garbage time to rest the starters for game 6 in D.C.

While last night might not have been very highlight worthy for John Wall, use your time to read this piece instead about Wall’s incredible postseason.

Tonight’s NBA Playoff action doesn’t contain any former Kentucky players, so is there really any reason to watch?

  • San Antonio Spurs at Houston Rockets, 8pm ET on ESPN
    • Spurs lead series 3-2
